Since this is a "wet clutch" bike. please be sure that you select an oil that is compatible.

If you use a "high mileage" or "energy conserving" oil that has friction modifiers, you risk screwing up your clutch.

Fortunately, there are many, many threads here (some with heated debates:busted:) with info about oil selection.
